Their carnitas special is amazing if you love pork. The steak is actually thick cut, not the thin cheap stuff that gets overcooked in a flash. Their liquor selection goes all the way to their ceiling, literally, and I've never had a better margarita than the one from there. All of this accompanied with a friendly staff that goes above...

Working in the area and stopped here for Mexican food. I found a good salsa and chips to start. The food was served quickly and was very good, the service was also very good and never had to wait for a refill of my drink. I'll be back.

The service was great (Carlos) fast and very friendly. Flavorful and fresh tasting larger portions. I have to agree the margaritas are great here. Right across the street from the hotel in the shopping center.

This is the place to go if you are looking for a margarita and great mexican food. You can get up to a 60 oz margarita by yourself, or a 256 oz (2 gallon) if you are with friends. The food is pretty good and the only place to get a margarita in town!

Not outstanding, but very acceptable typical Mexican food for those with Midwestern tastes. Everything the four of us in our party has was good. The service was very good to excellent. Everything was very clean in the restaurant. Would definitely return if I am in the area to eat again.

I personally didn't like it. Ok, ok, so call me lame, but when I go to Mexican restaurants I only order cheese quesadillas. If I'm going to eat taco meat, I'm going to make it. Plus grilled cheese is my 2nd favorite food and it's just a Mexican version. ANYWAYS, the quesadillas weren't very good but the cheese dip for... More

I stopped in for lunch after running through Wal-Mart which is near the restaurant. It is large and tastefully decorated. The wait staff is well dressed and quick to service in this clean establishment. I looked over the specials and opted for the steak tacos with pico de gallo and tomatillo sauce. The 3 tacos were good with the pico.... More

Eat here when we want Mexican and always enjoy it. The food is always great and the service is always good. The place is always clean they even clean each menu. So when in Vincennes stop in and enjoy some really good food in a nice clean place. You will not regret.
